ARLINGTON VA - A 17-YEAR-OLD YOUNG MAN WAS MAULED BY A PIT BULL IN A HOME THAT WAS BEING USED FOR A PIT SITTING SERVICE - 2 PITS GOT IN A FIGHT AND THEN TURNED ON HIM


A teenager suffered serious injuries trying to break up a fight between two dogs inside his Arlington, Virginia, home, police said.
A PIT BULL bit the 17-year-old from head to toe, police said.
“His intervention resulted in the fact that one of the dogs turned on him and him suffering severe injuries landing him in the hospital,” said Dustin Sternbeck of Arlington County Police.
The home on 8th Street South was used as a sitting service for pit bulls, and five dogs were in the house at the time, police said.
The dog also bit the boy in December, while the boy was trying to train the pit bull and wound up kicking the dog.
People at the house Thursday declined to comment but protested the police account by holding up signs reading “false story.”

Well that's quite an interesting story! I'd LOVE to hear more about the details on that one. I wonder if CPC will get involved since he's not quite an adult and it seems his parents are putting him in danger...?

Just read that the 17 yr old is in critical condition... And that it's his sister's business. I wonder if she has a license? ...

yep , sounds like another case of nutters beating around the bushes to save either their own butts or those of the pitbull or the rep of pitbulls in general . i definitely smell a rat .

What a great idea! A pit sitting service! And when a pit bull fight breaks out, try and intervene! I'll have to remember to kick my dog when I'm training her. I've been going about it all the wrong way.

Instead of doggy day care, pit bull maul care! They should probably offer to title the pit bulls while in their care, if a fight breaks out.

The pit bull that attacked doesn't sound aggressive to me. It sounds like a normal pit bull.
